Second Generation RNA-seq

submitted by: dougramsey
Next-generation sequencing is revolutionizing our knowledge of the human and other genomes and is increasingly being used in new and unexpected areas. This meeting is intended to help the next-generation of scientists to extend the use and application of this exciting technology. If you are new to next-generation sequencing this meeting will be an excellent introduction to the current state of the art as well as an overview of new applications that may be applicable to your research. There...

Unpacking the Wisdom of Crowds

submitted by: dougramsey
In this talk, Dr.Scott E. Page, University of Michigan, will present three models for explaining the wisdom of crowds phenomenon, in which collections make better predictions than the individuals that comprise them. The first two models will be traditional models based on error cancellation and averaging. The third will be based on aggregating diverse predictive models using a framework developed by Hong and Page (2008). This talk is part of Calit2's 2008-2009 Behavioral, Social and Computer...

Genome Quest

submitted by: dougramsey
Genomics research holds the possibility for transforming personalized medicine, consumer industries and the environment. However, in order to make decisions organizations must integrate and provide a single view of silos of genomic data. Past approaches have relied on database technology and have not succeeded due to maintenance costs, poor user interfaces, lack of scalability, or inability to change. Our mission is to use search, not database technology to cost-effectively deliver relevant...
